Liver Damage and Acetaminophen

By J. R. Rogers

It goes without saying that in my business I do a lot of reading. A great deal of my reading has to do with arthritis. When I find something that I think is worthwhile or important for you, I tell you about it.

Some New German Research

In a recent study, researchers focused on comparing the value of Glucosamine as opposed to other pain remedies. Of course, this does not include the fact that Glucosamine has rehabilitative qualities for your cartilage.

What they found is most interesting. This study, which was conducted at the University of Tuebingen Medical School, found that participants who were using acetaminophen for pain control were putting their bodies at some risk.

The study involved arthritis sufferers who were taking either 1500 mg of Glucosamine daily or 1000 mg. of acetaminophen.

Apparently, when the results were reviewed, nineteen percent (19%) of those taking acetaminophen developed abnormal liver enzyme levels. Now, that is a very serious medical issue and one that is surprising.

This study was actually prompted by doctors in Germany seeking alternatives to using acetaminophen. Of course, you can bet that the medical community in Germany took note of this and made a change that was appropriate.

This is no surprise either. Those who were using Glucosamine experienced greater pain relief than those taking acetaminophen. So, once again we have strong evidence that Glucosamine is the safest compound to use when you suffer from arthritis. And, it does rebuild damaged cartilage.

The Question is This

I asked myself why this study was done. I did so because Europe led the way in Glucosamine research long before U.S. researchers ever got involved. Of course, the answer was simple. These doctors were obviously concerned that too many of their patients were using acetaminophen and wondered about the consequences.


I have preached for years about the value of using Glucosamine. We have produced substantial evidence that a liquid formula is the way to go; that is, if you start with a pharmaceutical quality product and add a few other beneficial ingredients.

I am not sure how you feel about this single study but my mind is set. I would never use acetaminophen under any circumstances. Of course, I have not done so for many years-more than I care to think about.

Take the safe road. Your joints and your body will thank you for it.

See you next time.

8 Tips to Control Arthritic Pain

These past months in The Arthritis Chronicle, I've talked about my Eight Day Arthritis Ecourse that I had written. I had originally intended to give this informational course away free for only one issue, but due to the tremendous response and good word of mouth this course has brought, I have decided to give it away at no charge.

This Arthritis Course is packed with quality information on what you should know before you talk to your doctor, the arthritis diagnosis, treatment options, treatment side effects, glucosamine, tips on proper diets and exercise, weight management, alternative options, and an easy to understand explanation of what exactly arthritis is, how it occurs, and the effect on cartilage including a discussion of chondrocytes, collagen, proteoglycans, glycosaminoglycans, and synovial fluid.

If you are committed to taking the right steps towards effectively easing arthritis pain and knowing all your options, then this course will be extremely helpful to you.

The course is spread out over an eight day period and a new part of the course is sent each day right to your email inbox.
